PDF Split/Remove

Location:  Management->Split PDFs


The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) has the capability to split PDF documents into smaller independent PDF documents.  This page allows the user to split PDF documents according to instructions that have been setup from the Document Viewer->Doc Tab.  The user that sets up the split instructions and the user that performs the splitting can be separate users. 


To execute splits, from the main menu go to Management->Split PDFs.

The split request will be displayed. Click on the Split link. Re-enter the document breaks i.e. 1-3, 4-7, etc. and click Split Document. The new documents will be named as per the main document title in addition to 001, 002, etc.  

If the master document contained coding, the split documents will assume those designations.  It is best practice to split documents before coding.  The master document remains in the system for reference, but can be deleted.

There may be data dependent limits on the number of splits that can occur inside of a document, such as file corruption. See Corrupt PDF Files for more information. If you run into any issues using the split function, contact Professional Services.
